Djournal Coffee is…

Eclectic, Trendy, Community

Character (3)

Atmosphere: inside a mall; full of people hanging out and meeting

Size: large

Outdoor Seating: yes…a lot

Good for groups? yes

Good for work? yes (but with limited outlets)

Merchandise for sale? full range, brewing equipment, mugs, t-shirts, bags, et cetera

Writer’s Notes: There was a large wall separating the back seating area from the mall to make it feel like much more of a stand alone location. Great job on that. There was also a beautiful brew bar.

Comfort (4)

AC: good

Wifi: must register an account and present your ecard (email) to gain access

Electrical Outlets: very few

Music: medium volume, background

Lighting: back room has a lot of natural lighting but is dark when it’s cloudy

Chair type: many cushioned seats and couches

Food: full menu

Coffee (3)


Brewing Methods: V60, siphon, nitro cold brew, espresso machine


Notable Equipment: EK43, halogen lamps (for siphon)

Bean Variety: 4 single origin options

Roastery? yes

Price: 29k (manual brew); 50k (nitro)

Writer’s Notes: The coffee was good, but nothing really set it apart from other coffee shops other than the availability of nitro cold brew.

Overall Rating: 3

Recommended? yes, if you’re at or near the mall

Surprisingly, even though Djournal is located inside a mall, it was a very solid coffee shop that I wouldn’t mind going back to. They did a great job at making it feel separate from the mall and also offered really low prices for coffee in Jakarta.
